In case you need an easy and elegant wreath idea, I put together a new wreath for my bedroom to hang over my mantle. I've seen coffee filter wreaths posted all over my favorite crafting blogs and when I saw my friend Nikki's wreath, I knew I needed to attempt one myself.
This craft is not hard at all. Pinky swear. The biggest problem was my glue gun and how often I burned my fingertips.
Wreath (foam or straw)
Ribbon for hanging
*Most of the items can be found at the Dollar Store. Yippee!!
1. Separate coffee filters and fold into quarters forming a blossom like shape. I found that it worked faster to fold several filters and set them aside to glue later.
3. Be prepared with a glass of cold water for those burned fingertips. Note to self...invest in a new glue gun!!
4. I decided to embellish my wreath with a pink ribbon, antique pin and glittered valentine that I crafted with an image I found on Graphics Fairy.
Graphics Fairy has beautiful valentine images available if you are looking to make some special valentines. I embellished the vintage postcard image with lots of glitter and tiny flowers. I used straight pins to attach my valentine to the wreath so that I can swap it out with different items in the future.
